Super Simple Vegan Quinoa Dish

If there is one thing that I L.O.V.E, it’s a healthy supper recipe that I can whip up in 20 minutes or less. Usually our schedule is jam packed- leaving me little to no time to do the ‘in depth’ cooking thing.

During our food truck season (@guiltfreeyeg), I’m generally putting in solid 12-16 hour days between that, my nursing practice, and taking care of my own health.⠀

So the LAST THING I want to do after cooking/working all day is challenge my brain to figure out a complicated recipe.

I mean, seriously.⠀

Who honestly has time for 30 ingredients and 2 hours of cooking?

Answer: not this gal.

And if your schedule has anything more on it than waking up and eating- I’m guessing you feel the same.⠀

Cue in, my favourite quick vegan dish.

👉🏻 It’s quick (15 minutes from start to finish)⠀
👉🏻 It’s simple (3 ingredients plus spices)⠀
👉🏻 And it’s freaking delicious (which is the most important part- let’s be honest)⠀
